Profile Information

My personal story:
On July the 7th 1994 my eldest son Arik was kidnapped and killed by Hamas fighters. Ever since that event, I have been an advocate for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. i have co-founded at the same year The Israeli Palestinian Bereaved Families Circle, which I no longer run yet am still a member of. I am currently the Executive Director of the Fund for Reconciliation, Tolerance and Peace, and also the the founder of the Arik Institute.
Why I want peace:
I want no other person, either Israeli or Palestinian, to suffer the lost of a loved one as I have. I cannot turn back time and save my son, but I can make sure no one else has to.
Interests and activities:
I am an orthodox Jew and therefore I take great pleasure in the study of the Bible and Jewish thinkers throughout the ages in my spare time, which is less than I would like to since I am often very busy with my activities connected to the organisations I direct - fundraising, the operation of our website and social media and meeting people sympathetic to our cause.
Something you didn't know about me:
I smoke a pipe
Favorite website:

How I found mepeace.org:
I was interested in details of one of your members
What I want to achieve here:
I hope to find mutual encouragement and connection with other activists that are working "on ground level". I hope to receive information about activities and initiatives connected to the attempt to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?
Yes

Kiaora Yitzhak Frankenthal,

My name is Roberta Francis. I am a 23 year old student from New Zealand.
In 2011, while studying conflict resolution at Tel Aviv University, I had the privilege of being one of the 25, 000 students to partake in a Parents Circle Dialogue Encounter. It was during this encounter that I met two people who changed my entire perspective on the feasibility of peacebuilding, forgiveness and reconciliation. 

I was so moved by this experience that upon return to New Zealand, I spent 6 months speaking around my country about PC-FF, sharing the hope that Parents Circle members shared with me. 
Inspired by the dialogue encounter, I am now writing my masters thesis on the role of forgiveness in peacebuilding.
If you have time and are willing, I would be very honored to speak to you more about my project and to ask you some questions about forgiveness and peacebuilding.
Please feel free to contact me through my mepeace account or alternatively, you could email me at fraro296@student.otago.ac.nz

Thank you kindly, I hope we can talk soon,

Roberta

I'm sorry to hear what happened to your son. It is fascinating to hear you've become a peace advocate after this. You're a great example for a whole generation of peace-seeking persons, in showing that violence and hatred don't make sense.

In the name of the entire team of mepeace.org, welcome to mepeace.org. We are very proud to have peacemakers like you. You shine a light on all of us.
